Snoring, a sign of a serious health condition called sleep apnea.

Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the back of the throat when breathing is restricted.  Having undiagnosed sleep apnea causes many serious health risks, so it is important to be properly screened for this deadly disease.  Scottsdale dentist Dr. Eric Wiitala has had extensive training in snoring and sleep apnea to provide his patients with proper care.

Proper testing is needed to rule out sleep apnea, and that’s why Dr. Eric Wiitala will provide his patients with a simple (HST) Home Sleep Test to be performed in the comfort of your home.  The test usually takes 2-3 days of sleep recordings and then is read by board certified sleep Physician.  Only then can we decide on a course of treatment.
